    'Bout damned time these people woke up.

    Now if they only had a clue what they were protesting that would help, too.

    FiveThirtyEight.com estimates the Portland crowd at about 1,000 tea-baggers.

    Now as for this being a "grass-roots" movement, that seems a bit unlikely, especially since it was heavily advertised by FOX Noise and funded by groups like Dick Armey's 'FreedomWorks', Exxon-Mobile and others. 'Astroturf' would be a more appropriate appellation for this synthetic movement.

    Oregonian numbers for 1000... They didn't even send a reporter.

    Oh and... Does my siggy look like 1000 people? I got more photos just like it. We had anywhere from 5000-7000 people.

    If you want to believe the rag they call the Oregonian... Fine... Take it from someone in Oregon, it's a piece of crap paper.

    The group I helped with in Chicago were pretty much galvanized by what is outlined in the dvd/book, IOUSA: I.O.U.S.A.: The Movie
